This poem is taken from Morris' collection 'Poems By the Way', which are all various accounts of ill-fated love. A raven and a princess engage in conversation, and she asks him about her true love.
Primarily a textile designer, Morris was known throughout his life as a socialist activist associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement, and contributed greatly to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production. As a poet, he helped to establish the modern fantasy genre while simultaneously advancing the early socialist movement in Britain.
